Four schools get grants to make dramatic changes

Four of Utah’s persistently lowest achieving schools will work to turn around their performance with nearly $6.2 million in federal grants, the State Office of Education announced. The money, however, means they have to make dramatic changes — replacing the principal, in some cases; extending the school day and/or school year; using educator evaluation systems that take student growth data into account; providing additional teacher training; rewarding educators who improve student achievement and removing those who ultimately don’t after receiving additional support.
